Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Monaco starlet Benoit Badiashile, according to reports in France.
The 18-year-old was thrown in at the deep end last season and ended up making 20 Ligue 1 appearances, scoring one goal from centre-back.
However, the report claims Badiashile wants to stay at Monaco and become a regular starter for the club, who narrowly avoided relegation in 2018/19.
Even if Tottenham do make an approach for the teenager, it appears he could decide to remain in France rather than join a Champions League team.
Spurs might be in need of a new centre-back in the coming weeks if Toby Alderweireld’s £25 million release clause is triggered.
The Alderweireld speculation has all gone very quiet, but it only takes one offer for that to change.
